This article is great! (Although it should be renamed "Scouting Myths", as it does not deal with Urban Legends... nor should it.) For years "older" scouters have told me that we can't do this, or we can't do that... without really having a section of the BP&P to directly quote to support their position. This (growing) list of with definitive references debunking these myths is really valuable. I will add more once I find the exact verbiage and BP&P sections to support them. Maybe people can help. --SteveMatheson 14:35, 16 May 2012 (EDT)

Myths that need busting:

(Things to be added to the page, but definitive supporting references are needed.)

  • Scouts cannot participate in activities that require waivers from third parties (wall climbing facilities, for example)
    • May reference 13025 – WAIVERS
  • You can't be a Scout without going camping.
  • Beaver Scouts cannot register until after their 5th birthday (for insurance reasons)
